    what lakes in Ky, Tenn., or Alabama does not lower lake levels drastically in winter? I live at Rough River Lake, Ky now and they lower winter pool to extreme!

    TVA only lowers Watauga about 7 feet or so. You can go to TVA.COM and they show the projections for all of their lakes. The Corps website is not as informative.

    TVA fluctuates their lakes for flood control and to keep the TN river running high enough for barge traffic. Recreation is down the list on their priorities.

    Barkley and Kentucky lakes lower 4' to 5' in the winter.
